More than 1,800 exceptional women graduate students at UMKC have received Graduate Assistance Fund (GAF) fellowships or immediate aid awards.

Established in 1971, the GAF provides financial support to women currently enrolled in graduate programs or women first professional students in the schools of Dentistry, Law, Medicine or Pharmacy.  The fund is focused on the dimension beyond the classroom and thus does not fund tuition and textbooks.  It is designed to facilitate studies and to enrich and encourage educational experiences.

Together, members and friends of the council have made a difference in the educational lives of women students by contributing annually to the GAF endowment or by establishing lasting gifts through named awards.
